Dailey, representing the Alaska Native Brotherhood and Alaska Native Sisterhood, will serve her first term as RurAL CAP's board president, bringing her extensive human resources experience to an exciting leadership role.

I am honored to serve as board president and look forward to working with my RurAL CAP colleagues as we prepare to commemorate our 50th anniversary in 2015."
Along with Jacqueline Dailey's election as board president and Steve Longley of Nome continuing to serve as vice-president, Margaret Roberts of Kodiak was elected secretary/treasurer.
